The Week of Engineering - Indulging your curiosity

Week of Engineering

Tomorrow’s engineers will have jobs that don’t even exist today. The Week of Engineering is an annual event that will inspire young minds to think about those future possibilities. From 13-18 August, we’ll be hosting a variety of events that showcase amazing engineering across the country, feeding children’s natural curiosity about the world and how it works.

If you're a parent, a teacher, a professional engineer or a company who employs engineers, there are a lot of ways you can get involved in this year's celebration.

Engineering Expos

This year we’ll hold three free public expos in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on Saturday 18 August. The expos offer attendees an interactive and immersive learning experience. Last year more than 5,000 people attended our expos and this year we’re expecting 10,000 people.


The Week of Engineering is made possible with the help of many committed volunteers. We all have something in common – we love engineering and we want to blow kids’ minds about what is possible. There are many ways you can get involved…
